This is going to be interesting. The Halo franchise is very much loved by a generation of gamers of a certain age, and while there have been toy spin offs and the likes, I don’t remember a dedicated tabletop version. One thing Mantic games are solid on is their rulesets. They’ve always managed to allow you to get on and play a game without having to refer to a million rule tables in my experience. They’ve also been really good with their own sculpting model work on their own IPs. With Worms last year, and now this, I’m wondering if we are going to be seeing more IPs from the Notts based company.
UK-based tabletop studio Mantic Games announces a partnership with 343 Industries to launch a brand-new Halo miniatures combat
Launching directly to retail in September 2024, Halo fans can eagerly look forward to amazing new
40mm Spartan miniatures that bring Halo multiplayer battles to life in an expertly crafted team
combat game experience for tabletop newcomers and veterans alike.
“We are thrilled to team up with Mantic Games to bring a new Halo tabletop game to fans in 2024”,
said John Friend, Head of Halo and Xbox Consumer Products. “Mantic is a leader in tabletop gaming,
and their quality and experience show through in all their work. I’m most excited in this case about
their passion for the Halo franchise and for bringing Halo gameplay to tabletop gaming in an
incredibly authentic way.”
“We’re extremely excited to be partnering with 343 Industries on bringing Halo to tabletops
everywhere”, said Ronnie Renton, CEO and founder of Mantic Games. “Having a firefight play out on
the table while moving Spartans in and out of cover connects players to the action in a new and
special way. We have a thrilling and competitive game, from a passionate team of talented
sculptors, artists, and designers who have been building an incredible Halo experience.”
Mantic Games and 343 Industries will be pulling back the curtain soon on this exciting new addition
to the Halo universe. Halo and miniature gaming fans around the world can expect their first
preview of the new game in March 2024.
